Help! I feel anxious…
Anxiety is no fun for anyone. I can recall times when I was anxious about an upcoming test, or getting a group project finished. All the stress and concern would often cause me to not sleep all that well at night.
But anxiousness is not God’s best for my life and for yours too.
God didn’t design us to be anxious. In fact, He loves it when we bring Him the things that worry and upset us. As we do, He’s there to help us carry those concerns.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. – Philippians 4:6 (NIV)
This verse gives us a roadmap when it comes to the things that make us anxious. Instead of letting anxiousness build in your life, take those things that make you anxious before God. Let Him know what you need and ask Him for His help.
You’ll be surprised what will happen if you’ll be open to being led by Him. He wants to help you every step of the way. So determine to not let anxiousness run your life. Instead, choose to go to Him, let Him know you’re upset and anxious and get His help and wisdom to bring a solution to pass in your life.
